Another great bulb is Leucojum aestivum. Books say the common name is Summer Snowflake. But it blooms in early Spring and everybody just calls it Leucojum. It comes back every year with those cute white bell flowers that rise up to about 1- 1/2 feet. It tolerates partial shade too.  I can't wait to have it all over the garden.


  1. is that bigger or smaller than lily of the valley? i can't tell by the picture...

  2. Well, Lily of The Valley don't grow here so I'm not sure. I think this is twice the size; flowers and plant size.
